Lift should work. Rear Drive shaft wont, not sure about the front. Axle shafts should be the same.

Only the rear drive shaft will not fit. Everything else will fit.

The springs will "fit", but the amounts of lift will be quite different.

Agreed. Its exactly what I've done in my D1-D90 build.

So the springs are not the same ones that they use on a d90 lift or are they the same just the ride height will differ from the d1.

Same springs. You will get more lift out of it on a 90 due to weight.

The problem is it will not lift evenly. 90s are evenly weighted front and rear. Discos are heavier in the back. The stock springs on a Disco are much lighter than on a 90.

He is looking if they swap over and they will.

So the truck won't sit even


But they are the same springs you get with the d90 lift? Is it because the d1 will have "worn them out"?

Just checked rte website and shows same part number for both 90 and d1 for the springs <shrug>
